Intelligencer – Anything Goes

The sprawling 6,700-square-foot home sits on more than an acre with a hillside backdrop in the Thunderbird Heights neighborhood. The décor incorporates midcentury film posters — the Moroccan studio screening room is an ode to Crosby's "Road to" movies — and other Hollywood memorabilia and photographs.

When Luxist posted a story and photos on its website about the 1957-built Thunderbird Heights house once owned by Bing Crosby, one reader commented, “Could certainly benefit from a good decorator, while another posted the opinion that it was “a very classy estate with unique decor.”

But a mention in the story that a suite in the house commemorates the 1962 meeting there of President Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe drew this post: “A room dedicated to an adulterous affair is a selling point?” As the ancient playwright Terence once said, “So many men. So many opinions.”

The house is currently on the market for $3,495,000.00
